I have been on the look out for a leasehold apartment up to £305k and found one round the corner in Kington I like with open areas and station nearby, however it's only got 49 years on the lease. There is not much else in Kington in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake purchasing a short lease?
Should you need a home loan the shortness of the lease will be problematic. Reduce the price by the amount the lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing proprietor has owned the premises for at least twenty four months you may request that they commence the lease extension formalities and then assign it to you. You can add 90 years to the existing lease term and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing lawyer about this matter.

I have just started marketing my ground floor flat in Kington. Conveyancing solicitors are to be appointed soon, however I have recently had a quarterly maintenance charge invoice – should I leave it to the buyer to sort out?
The sensible thing to do is pay the invoice as you normally would because all ground rent and service payments should be apportioned on completion, so you will be reimbursed by the buyer for the period running from after the completion date to the next payment date. Most management companies will not acknowledge the buyer until the service charges have been paid and are up to date, so it is important for both buyer and seller for the seller to show that they are up to date. Having a clear account will assist your cause and will leave you no worse off financially.
